"The final project for CS248 was to write a 3D video game. To help inspire our students to delve deeply into the wonderful world of graphics, we also held a public competition, with a panel of expert judges selecting the best game.
There were 7 finalists. The winning group won a trip to Siggraph 2006, while second place won a free dinner for two at Il Fornaio in Palo Alto. We also had a 'wackiest, most creative' prize consisting of an Xbox 360, generously donated by Microsoft. All finalists also won video games donated by Electronic Arts.
